Relief by Ryan Tan

Ryan Tan

One Land Link kit contains: clay soil, goldenrod seeds, one inflatable greenhouse, and two L-shaped flower pots. Best assembled at the gym, library, or any well-lit corridor. Avoid the control room and the dormitory. Spray the soil with submarine-filtered water. Greet your plant after breakfast. You may stroke its leaves. Imagine its roots are telephone cords. Surface flowers relay your voice — ghost flowers in nuclear soil. When? you ask. Next century, we say. Stay with the sharks for now. May contain manure from evaporated cows. Suitable for piano-calloused fingers and coral-gazing captains. Packed by the Great Rally Around Veteran Evacuees.
